max-bklyn has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All, Does anyone know any great Perl courses in NYC? I'm looking for something that's easy for someone who's already versed in programming quite a bit, but is now learning Perl. Many thanks in advance!

    Stonehenge offers great courses by very knowledgeable instructors, but if you're looking for a class to sit in, I'm not sure if it's the way to go.

    Cheers,

    Going back three years, I taught an introductory Perl course at the New School's Computer Instruction Center. But that subsequently went out of business -- though I doubt my course had much to do with that!

    I don't know of any other formal courses in NYC at the present time, but you're welcome to come to the monthly meetings of Perl Seminar New York http://groups.yahoo.com/group/perlsemny which will resume on the third Tuesday of October and run through May. We've been meeting since December 2000 and function as (a) the tech meeting twin sister to NY Perlmongers' social meetings and (b) the Perl SIG for NYPC Users Group.

    I'm meeting with co-moderator Alex Gill this coming week to plan our calendar for the next several months. We don't offer introductory instruction in any systematic way, but at least you'll meet other Perl hackers to whom you can direct questions.

    I up voted you because seeking wisdom is always a good thing to do :)

    The best course anywhere in the world is right here! Just read peoples questions and replys, read the tutorial materials, and read the Q&A and FAQ stuff and you will get more at a lower price than anywhere else at all. And the armchairs are comfortable and company excellent to boot.

    Howdy!

    University of Maryland University College http://www.umuc.edu offers a beginning and advanced Perl course (three credits each), and I think they offer them in the online format.

    When you do find a course in your area, check out Perl Training Australia's online course materials to supplement your education. :-)
